the next year in the next 24 hours. will house minority leader nancy pelosi stay or go? pelosi has been coy about whether she plans to run for leader again. tonight she meets the top democrats. tomorrow morning another meeting with democratic leadership as she prepares for a meeting with the full democratic house caucus. will we know her plans by tomorrow night? smart money still says she probably doesn't run again, but two years ago that was where the smart money was, too. if she doesn't run, steny hoyer is as close to a shoo-in as you can get to replace her. there's just not the votes for somebody else to challenge steny hoyer but you never know. then there is defense secretary leon panetta. he was asked about his second term plans on the plane traveling to australia, and he told reporters, quote, it's no secret that at some point i would like 0 to get back to california. panetta is likely to stay in the post through the budget negotiations and possibly through the spring when they do the next round of budgets. so does that mean he's willing to stay in the pentagon for four more years? fo

by a full house vote. there was some buzz about whether nancy pelosi would continue on as the top house democrat, which she told us today. >> my colleagues made it very clear and in fact i think they must have coordinated with each other because their message was clear, don't even think of leaving. >> if the next congress is anything like this congress, you can expect plenty of boehner vs. pelosi battle, shep. >> shepard: mike emanuel at the retundra, thanks. now the storm aftermath. the long road to recovery continues after historic storm sandy. we have details now on the legal battle over the power outages that have lasted more than two weeks in some cases. plus, you will hear a top u.s. official threaten to punch out a reporter. you will probably like this. they've been committed to putting clients first. helping generations through tough times. good times. never taking a bailout. there when you need them. helping millions of americans over the centuries. the strength of a global financial leader. the heart of a one-to-one relationship. together for your future. ♪ >> shepard: the f

are back. today representative nancy pelosi said she'll serve as house democratic leader for two more years. she actually hummed the song "hallelujah" as the women of the incoming 113th congress joined her for the news conference. this is a record-breaking group, my friends. there was barely room on the platform for all of them to show up and be a part of it. pelosi will be joined by 80 other women in the u.s. house of representatives. 20 women will serve in the united states senate. it's a diverse group of women who probably won't agree on every issue. their success socked the republicans, no doubt about it. senate democrats were the underdogs in the election cycle, especially in the great state of north dakota, the prairie. republicans counted on congressman rick burg to defeat heidi heitkamp. didn't happen. they were wrong. and one of the nation's most accurate forecasters got it wrong as well. >> we missed the north dakota senate race. >> yes, you did. you said that republican rick burg would win. he lost. >> he lost. >> foerp north dakota attorney general heidi heitkamp narrowly defeat
in session. nancy pelosi saying she would stay in her job as democratic leader as long as you stated in yours as the head of the democratic congressional campaign committee. now yesterday she was asked about the democratic leadership. but and i want to play some of what the exchange was and get your reaction to that. take a listen. >> some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and hurts the party in the long term. >> i think that what you will see, and let's for a moment honor it as a legislate question. although it's quite offensive, but you don't realize it, i guess. the fact is that everything that i have done in my almost decade now of leadership is to let younger and newer people to the congress. >> sir, in your estimation, did he have a point in pointing out all the players are staying the same, and is there a potential for new leadership blood to move things along in what many people would consider the gridlock that exists in washington, d.c. >> well, i love luke, but i think his question wasn't legislate. le
. first, what is the situation now? you've just briefed nancy pelosi. we've had word from her. where does it stand now, in terms of the rocket fire coming from garz and the return? >> good to be with you, andrea. well, just recently in the last hour and a half, rockets have struck tel aviv, terrorist rockets fired from gaza. >> did any of the rockets land in tel aviv? we were told by our correspondent they did not hit. what do you know about that? >> they landed in the tel aviv aarea. no injuries caused, thank god. this means 4.5 million israelis over half of the population of our country, is under rocket fire from gaza and israel's taking all means necessary to defend our citizens against the aggression. we've had 1,000 rockets fired at our citizens over the last month alone. israelis are in bomb shelters. prime minister netanyahu went to a bomb shelter in tel aviv to show his support. and our operations are continuing to persuade hamas and other terrorist organizations in gaza to cease firing rockets at our innocent civilians. >> is there a circumstance under which you would have ground
the numbers that nancy pelosi needs to become speaker again. and that's going to happen if the republicans keep thinking like mitt romney. >> you know, that's the question, ashley, and that is as you see the demographic changes, younger voters tend to be more liberal. a lot of hispanic people moving into the country having a lot of kids and voting and being citizens, becoming a part of a political process more than ever and you have african-american voters, an african-american president but there are other factors that have led hem to the democratic party potentially. you see a lot of potential for the democratic party to grow. then the other party says you're all bought, it seems to me that would just sort of fortify the democratic tendencies of the people we've been talking about here. >> well, it's unclear what wing of the republican party mitt romney, you know, is going to be representing going forward, and i think that's one of the reasons -- >> the mayor says he's out of business. i'm not sure he has a future. >> that's why it's easy for the republicans to come out and criticize him
here a while. you've seen a lot of these meetings. most likely a photo op before the weekend. nancy pelosi was saying yesterday that she would welcome a number that both sides could start working toward and some republicans also say that. do you think there is any hope that maybe by just november, the end of november, there could be consensus on, okay. here's the top line where we're going to write the bill to. do you think that is possible? >> i don't want to minimize the difficulty ahead but i definitely think and get the impression from everything that both sides have said post election that there is some hope here in part. and greater hope for an agreement in the shorter term. there will be a lot of work that would have to be done next year to fill in the details but more of a chance of a deal now since you have the same cast of characters back at the table than you would have if mr. romney would have been elected. they know each other. they've talked about these issues before. they've already winoed down the issues. >> fascinating. if that becomes true. we'll talk more and get
this the cornerstone of working something out. that sounds good. then nancy pelosi, the house minority leader, saying that this has to be about cuts. this has to be about revenue. this has to be about growth and that she is confident a solution is in sight. sounds good, too. and then the house minority leader or rather the minority leader mitch mcconnell also suggesting that this was a constructive meeting and that we are prepared to put revenue on the table. they just emerged from the meeting. looked like they were going right back in. maybe they were going to have lunch. i don't know. they sure deserve it if they're able to come to rhetoric like that any any case. take to you break for a moment and hopefully i can scramble up wolf blitzer. given the fact we're so busy with breaking news he is probably busy as well. [ knock on door ] cool. you found it. wow. nice place. yeah. [ chuckles ] the family thinks i'm out shipping these. smooth move. you used priority mail flat rate boxes. if it fits, it ships for a low, flat rate. paid for postage online and arranged a free pickup. and i'm gonna track them
at this and moving on it. but with now 45 days to go, you know, i think the minority leader nancy pelosi's goal of christmas is a good one. it's probably also realistic that it won't happen before then. >> what about to both of you, if, if we get the money, say we get this trillion dollars one way or another, is there a guarantee, nancy, to you first, that, that this goes to reducing the deficit? i mean, do we have that guarantee? is there any way it could be spent? >> well, i feel like the president has talked about spending some of that before on infrastructure projects, and the idea of creating jobs. but i do think that the bulk of it will go towards reducing the deficit. that's something that both parties agree really has to be tackled. and the problem is that if they don't tackle it now they'll have to tackle it down the road. so i think that this will be -- this is one of the few shared goals that they do have, taking that money to reduce it. >> you agree, ed? >> yeah, absolutely. i think you mention infrastructure. i mean, that is one possible spending program or stimulus-like proposal t
republicans will be the ones taking the blame. >> nancy pelosi insists that raising tax rate for the rich is going to happen. let me show you this. >> we've seen talk about a possible compromise that would leave rates the same but cap deductions for high-income earners. is that something that's acceptable? >> no. >> not at all. no way. >> well, no. i mean, the president made it very clear in his campaign that there is not enough -- there are not enough -- what you just describe is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> heather, do you think the republicans will back down on this kind of insistence by the president backed up by pelosi and the democrats? >> i think there's real reason for hope. i think that the president soundly won the election, that the democratic senate got more progressive with people like elizabeth warren with sharon brown beating back hundreds of millions of dollars in special-interest corporate money from likes like the chamber. so i think there is hope for there to have been a strong signal started frankly last year with occupy, where we had this fra
stories yesterday is nancy pelosi, the top democrat in the house plans to stick around in her job as minority leader. how surprising was that news yesterday? caller: the sense upon reporters is that was what we expected. i think there was some questions both in 2010 when democrats lost control of the house. then again this year when democrats fell short of their initial goal of regaining control of the house whether leader nancy pelosi would stick around. i think she was signaling quietly by not letting people know she was staying. i think it was clear she wanted to first talk about and give the news to democrats behind closed doors. host: what does it indicate in terms of the direction of congressional democrats? what can we read from this move? caller: that the pelosi doctrine or the leadership she has had over 10 years, she was very instrumental in a lot of passing the legislation that the obama administration passed during its first term. health care, dodd-frank, a lot of these pieces of legislation. we are going to continue to see her in her role as minority leader and workin
squishy. listen to the democratic leader of the house nancy pelosi. >> we're open to a grand bargain and however we get to the place where we can have significant deficit reduction now the president campaigned on the 250. american people support that. i think that's where a good deal of leverage is. >> in other words the democrats will settle for just taxes going up and people making more than a million dollars. $1 million. that will be the final deal. president obama, a lot of folks in washington as we prepare for a hearing this morning on benghazi and general petraeus who is going to be testifying this morning a lot of people still talking about the dust up between republicans and the obama administration over susan rice. she went out on the sunday talk shows and got some of the information wrong about what happened in benghazi. president obama on wednesday strongly defended her in the wake of attacks from senators john mccain and lindsey graham. >> obama: if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go aft
president obama and the four top congressional leaders john boehner, nancy pelosi, harry reid, mitch mcconnell all will begin talks at the white house. cnn's jill dougherty is following those developments for us this morning. she's in our washington, d.c. bureau. good morning, jill. >> hello, soledad. well, this is it. both sides are going to be there. they're looking at the tone. they're looking at the president, what kind of tone will he set? you have to say that they're coming in both sides with their essential positions intact. all, both sides are saying that there is some room for a compromise. so, the essential thing is how do you compromise? if you look at the positions, let's say, of the republicans, and it's most strongly, as i say, relayed by senator mitch mcconnell, he does not, and they do not, want any tax increases. so let's listen to him first. >> and let's be clear, an opening bid of $1.6 trillion of new taxes just isn't serious. it's more than simpson-bowles or any other bipartisan commission has called for. it's been unanimously rejected in the house and senate, it's t
katherine. nancy pelosi suggested maybe there is a bit of wiggle room in the $250,000 amount. maybe we could move it higher who is considered rich in this country. is that something though that you think john boehner is even interested in? >> i think it is probably something that he might consider. this is how negotiations work. congressional "fight club." they stake out their positions and sort of move closer together as they come together and actually meet and discuss this. there are couple options what they can do on the table. president signaled perhaps it doesn't have to be all about getting rates to clinton era levels. perhaps getting revenue from other places. i think that would be healthier, broader tax reform kind of deal made. i'm not sure whether they're all savvy enough to make that deal. i mean. martha: seems to me that is the major issue here. that is what john boehner was hinting at. he is suggesting that if you remove some of the loopholes that is a tax increase on the wealthy in this country. i feel like that is a message that has gotten across in perhaps a clear enough way.
: house minority leader nancy pelosi says congress wants to show a message of confidence to the markets and she said they should aim to strike a deal on the fiscal cliff by christmas. the special lasted just over an hour. president obama said nothing explicit about reining in entitlement spending. instead the chief executive spoke about approaching the deficit in a balanced way and talked about long-term impediments to growth. >> i think we are all aware that we have some urgent business to do. we have got to make sure that taxes don't go up on middle class families and our economy remains strong that we are creating jobs and that's an agenda democrats and republicans and independents, people all across the country share. >> reporter: republican leaders gave no indication they are willing to entertain the idea that the president wants them to, namely the raising of tax rates on some particular categories of income earners. the top republican told reporters he believes the dilemma isn't because we tax too little, but because we spend too much. >> we fully understand that you can't save t
when you saw nancy pelosi out there. you saw john boehner out there saying we are hopeful we can get a deal done. and the market had a positive reaction to that. yet it lost that upside throughout the day, teetered back and forth between positive and negative territory. finally, closing the day out positive, so perhaps that suggests that maybe we are a little bit closer. but here's the thing, randi, they've got to get something done. they've got to solve this issue. because if not, the consequences are severe. >> but you listen to some people, and they suggest that fears of fallen off the cliff are overblown. what are the real consequences here? >> the real consequences are another recession. i mean, i can tell you every ceo that i'm talking to right now says i'm not making major decisions. i'm waiting. i'm standing by the sidelines. i can't hire a lot of people, i can't invest in a lot of infrastructure because i don't know what the landscape is going to be in the next 45 days. i don't know what the landscape is going to be in the next three months. so there's a lot of holdup. now,
cliff issue. we have new comments from nancy pelosi on the fiscal cliff today. let's listen to that. >> would you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy. we have seen a possible compromise that would leave rates the same but cap deductions for top earners? >> no. the president made it clear there are not enough -- what you described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> what do you think? does this mean a deal will not get done? >> i think there is desire on both sides to get a deal done. that doesn't mean we will see one. both sides are taken the election to mean that the american people want action. the president has taken it to mean the american people endorsed his so-called balanced approach to balancing the budget. and we saw spirited koopg with the leaders coming out after the meetening a now they mr. get down to the details where to make cuts and revenue increases and can do you do it by just closing loopholes, is that enough or do you have to talk about tax rates in particular think tax rating for the wealthy. that's is whe
's a fantastic achievement senate and nancy pelosi was totally right to congratulate that. but what was interesting she pointed out we had to go further. >> in "park lane" you go back to world war i. toll us about that. >> that was a seminal moment of change for women's rights. there was the suffrage -- the women's suffrage campaign was really reaching the height. they were burning down buildings, chaining themselves to railings. one went and slashed a painting, but when the war came this was the real moment in which came into their open own because the men went off to fight and the women stepped into men's jobs. this was tremendously empowering for them. they were driving ambulances at the front, some were even going into the trenches and administering care. >> you said there was somewhat of a sexual revolution. >> there was. i feel a sexual revolution is very emancipating for women. but what happens, the soldiers were fighting in france, they were so close they could get to england for a week or two and the duty to remain a virgin until you got married became outweighed to give ev
you have? a youtube moment. >> simply fantastic. >> all that and that matters. >> nancy pelosi asked whether she should consider stepping aside simply to make room for younger members. >> let's for a moment honor thanks a legitimate question. >> an onlynn petition to allow texas withdraw from the united states has more than 100,000 signatures. >> the signatures are from every state but texas. >>> welcome to cbs "this morning." i'm charlie rose in washington. norah o'donnell is in new york. there is a lot to talk about after president obama's first white house news conference in eight months. it covered everything from the budget crisis to libya, to the david petraeus scandal. >> the president himself said that so much has happened lately people forget the election of just a week ago. nancy cordes covered the news conference. she's at the white house. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the president came to the east room of the white house hoping to push his message on the fiscal cliff and he did but he also got pressed with a number of questions about his handling of for
